Welcome to Lion’s Roar Dharma Center

Buddhist teachings at Lion’s Roar are especially designed for people with daily work, school and family commitments. As 21st Century Buddhists we promote and share basic human values and work through challenges and relationships openly. We live the concepts of compassion, tolerance, self-discipline and interdependence in order to achieve happiness and overcome suffering. We want to help people make the Lion Roar. We believe it is possible through practice and realization, no matter what one’s life circumstances. We aim to create an open and just society for everyone.
WE HAVE A ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY! Our dream is about to come true! We have made an offer on a property that will be a perfect home for our Dharma Center! We have just a few weeks to raise $250,000! So far we have $123,000, nearly half way to our goal! To help us realize our dream, please click on www.lionsroardharmacenter.org/donate/.
